- ½ cup refined coconut oil, room temperature
- ¾ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg, room temperature
- ¾ cup mashed ripe banana, room temperature (about 2 large bananas)
- 2 teaspoons Simply Organic® Pure Madagascar Vanilla Extract or Vanilla Bean Paste
- 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ cup whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon Simply Organic® Cinnamon
- 2 cups quick-cooking oats
- 3/4 cup chopped fresh strawberries (1/8 - 1/4-inch pieces)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 3 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, stir coconut oil by hand until softened and smooth. Add sugars and; using the paddle attachment, beat at medium speed for about 2 minutes, until well combined, stopping to scrape sides of bowl. Beat in egg. Add banana and vanilla; mix until combined.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together flours, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Add flour mixture to banana mixture all at once; and beat at medium-low speed until nearly combined, stopping to scrape sides of bowl. Add oats; mix just until combined. Gently fold in strawberries.
- Using a 1½-tablespoon spring-loaded scoop, scoop dough onto prepared pans, placing dough balls at least 1½ inches apart.
- Bake, one pan at a time, for 8 to 12 minutes, until edges and tops are just set but centers still seem slightly underdone, rotating pan halfway through baking. Let cool on pan for 5 minutes and serve warm, or let cool completely on wire racks.
- A 3½- to 4-inch round cutter can be used to form still-warm cookies into a more circular shape, if desired. Place cutter around 1 cookie; gently move cutter in a circular motion while making contact with edges of cookie until desired shape is reached. Repeat as needed.
